Real-world data stories from the field - Love Data Week @UofA

This year's Love Data Week theme is data storiesLove Data Week is an international social media campaign which aims to raise awareness and build a community to engage on topics related to research data management.

We invite you to join us on Friday February 16 at 2 pm, Main Library room 112A to hear what data stories your colleagues on campus have to tell! 

How does data facilitate telling a story? What challenges are there when using data for research? What are the dangers of data misuse and abuse? What are some good practices for success? What is the role of data in the daily work of professionals?

If you’re curious about how others on campus use data in their work – be it research, education, or business – we invite you to come to ILC112 on Friday, February 16 at 2pm to learn about data issues from those that have encountered them firsthand. Through a series of short presentations, listen to the experiences and viewpoints of faculty, staff, and students as they share their own personal data stories.
